Need a Mother’s Day Gift for your mom?
Remind her just how important she really is, with this One in a Melon box.
Mom, if you are reading this… Surprise! I hope you enjoy your gift. Sorry I spilled the beans a few days early. Love you!
Lets get started…
What you Need:
Decorative Shred or Confetti
Fruit Themed Gifts
My gifts included: Watermelon Sour Patch Kids, Watermelon Gum, Lotion, Pink Nail Polish, and a Book.
How to Make:
Start by measuring the sides of your box. Using those measurements cut your scrapbook paper to fit each flap. If you choose to, you can line the inside of the box with paper as well. Once your paper is measured properly and cut to size, using a glue stick glue paper into place.
Quick tip: I like to put the glue directly on the paper first, before placing it on the box. I start by gluing half the page, at a time. It makes it easier to place on the box evenly, before the glue dries out. Once that half of the paper is securely placed on the box, rub it down and add glue to the second half.
I fully lined this box with watermelon paper. Sometimes however, I choose to only line the flaps of the box. You decide!
Once your box is lined, write the “One in a Melon” saying on with a marker or print out the letters in the download above onto cardstock. I prefer to co
I made the document green but once I put them on my watermelon paper, it didn’t pop out enough for me. So if you prefer your letters black instead, print the download in black and white. Using scissors, cut the letters out and use a glue stick to glue them into place.
When your box is completed, start by filling it with your decorative shred. I found mine had the dollar store. You can also find it at Hobby Lobby as well. Last but not least, place all of your gifts inside. If you have extra shred, consider covering the gifts before taping the box shut.
Thoughts by L:
I really enjoyed making this box! Not only because it was a gift for my mom but because it was bright and colorful. I am also a big fan of puns… I think they are punny!
It’s also adorably “sweet.” 🍉😂
